Guestbook comments from the owner
A few short days in the countryside, was the perfect break from our Dublin vacation. Oban sur la mer was the perfect setting.



From Liam and Frances warm welcome, to the hours our children spent collecting shells on the beach, Oban we will miss you.



Open fires every evening, the football table, terrific family dinners. Oban we will miss you.



Skipping rocks on the Irish Sea, buidling sand castles and enjoying the sound of the crashing waves. Oban we will miss you.



A morning run on the coast road, ''full Irish'' breakfasts and surprisingly sunny, warm days. Oban, we will miss you.



Oban was the ideal setting for our family to reconnect, unwind and recharge.



Thank you to Joe and his extended family from the D family in Toronto.



''Oban, we will miss you!''

We are a family of 5 living in the centre of Dublin & we love our weekends in 'Oban sur la mer', our haven of tranquility which we share with you. Our kids love the beach & having the Bridgewater Shopping Centre so close by, means that we are never short of things to do. A great hangout for the larger family gatherings - just 50 mins from Dublin but it seems like it's another world.

A WONDER IN WICKLOW

  • 4 of 5
A lovely spacious family friendly property in a great location. The house itself comes well equipped and provides lots of living space.

The enclosed outdoor space was well maintained and very enjoyable for the children. They had great fun playing on the swings and running about the apples trees.

The private access to the beach was a great bonus as the private beach area was another lovely place for the children to play. The access to the beach needs a little clearing of vegetation.

There were great amenities in the property, including satellite TV and WIFI. The Weber barbecue was well used as we had great weather.

The property's close location to the thriving fishing town of Arklow and Brittas bay was very good, providing a wealth of activities for three generations of the one family.

Other great tourist attractions, such as Avoca and Powerscourt are within a short car journey. We would highly recommend a visit to Powerscourt waterfall on a good day, but make sure to bring a picnic!

We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great house in a central seaside location.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Neil, we're delighted that you all had a great holiday in Oban & thanks for the reminder about the vegetation along the path which needs regular cutting. We dont use any chemical sprays for obvious reasons.

Next time you visit, take a trip to Hunters Hotel in Rathnew - the afternoon tea in what is a lovely old Inn, is a big favourite with our lot, aswell as plenty of space to run around afterwards in the rose bedecked gardens

PERFECT LITTLE HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a brilliant week's holiday at Oban.

On arrival we were so pleased to find everything just right for our extended family. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and feeding 10 hungry mouths! The large living area and garden are ideal for little (and not so little!) ones to relax or run about. And the private beach at the end of the garden path was super. Stone-collecting became a favourite pastime during our week stay!

Wicklow is such a beautiful place to be. We were blessed with good weather and found visiting Avoca mill and coffee shop, Glendalough, Brittas Bay beach, Powerscourt Gardens and waterfall, and a wee trip to the play park in Arklow all suited our wee group from 18months to 69 years of age!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Oban, the house is beautiful and in such a beautiful setting. We would definitely recommend this lovely holiday to anyone looking for a peaceful get-away, with space around to relax or play or visit in the beautiful County Wicklow!

CONFORTABLE, SPACIOUS AND FAMILY ORIENTATED.

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely stay at Oban and were very lucky with the weather so we could really enjoy the garden and our grandchildren loved being able to go down to the beach and sea so easily. This was a 3 generation family break and although we were 10 in all we all had our privacy and the big kitchen/dining area was great for family dinners.
Great day trips without travelling too far.
We don't regret our choice.

LOVELY STAY - WE WILL BE BACK!

  • 4 of 5
We had a lovely stay in Oban. The property was clean and perfect for our large family group (a mixture a small children to 90 year old grandparents and everything in between). The cottage had lots of common rooms but plenty of privacy too if you need it.
The beach at the bottom of the garden was delightful andwe found lots of interesting things to do near by. Powerscourt and Avoca Mills were our favourite as were some of the Wicklow Way mountain walks.
We will be back!

We had a wonderful time in this beach side home! This house is a wonderful get-away location just a one-hour drive from Dublin. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in both, the very comfortable and homely house and its wonderfully big secure garden with direct beach access. We did not want to leave and will certainly be back for another holiday at 'Oban'. Thank you, Hilkka

A PERFECT HOUSE FOR A YOUNG FAMILY TO HOLIDAY IN.

  • 4 of 5
Oban was the perfect house for our relaxing family holiday. Our 3 children are small and the safety and space of the garden was just perfect, we could sit back and relax on the deck knowong they were safe and free to run around. I loved going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the sea it was bliss. The position of the house is also super for shopping in arklow or losing yourself in the wonder that is Glendalough. The next door neighbours were also lovely and Joe made us feel very welcome. We will definitely be back. The house is exactly as you see on the website.

Map

Car: necessary

Scenic Seaside Vacation Beach Cottage nestling in historic mountain setting with great golf courses close to hand. For more information & photos go to www.brittasbayholiday.wordpress.com

Just a few kms from 8th century monastic ruins at Glendalough, where mountains & waterfalls combine to deliver a spiritual tranquillity. Where Excalibur, The Tudors & Braveheart are just some of the movies shot against beautiful mountain scenery.

A private sandy beach shared with just one other house, makes seaside walks, sea angling, surfing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing & all water sports, an easy everyday option for all the family.

Revel in Shirley's home baking available from 'An Cisean Aran' (the bread basket) in Arklow for the farm fresh food for which Wicklow, 'The Garden of Ireland', is famous. Step back in time to Hunter's Hotel in Rathnew, an old stage coach inn now famous for its afternoon tea of cucumber sandwiches & cake on the lawn. For a more formal quality dining experience, the Park restaurant in Arklow is highly recommended.

And there is Eddie Rockets in Arklow Bridgewater Shopping Centre for the classic kids experience, following the late morning movie where there is always a deal on the early kids movie.

Nearby the Arklow Bay Spa and Leisure Centre, provides a swimming pool and all gym facilities.

Golf is hugely popular with the world famous European Club just 2 kms away; Woodenbridge, Arklow & Blainroe giving 3 more golfing challenges all within a half hour of the cottage.

Historic houses & sites including Russborough which housed the famous Beit art collection, Kilruddery, Mount Usher & Powerscourt (now home to a five star hotel & luxury Rhodes restaurant), are all easily accessible, less than an hour from the cottage.

For a night at the theatre, a concert at the Point or the RDS, or attending a football, rugby or hurling match at either of Ireland's world class stadiums in Croke Park or the Aviva, the heart of Dublin city is just an hour away. Or visit the Gate, the Abbey, the Tivoli, the Gaiety or any of Dublin's world renowned theatres for an unforgettable the Spain experience.

Take a tour of 2 of Ireland's best known breweries/distilleries, Guinness & Jameson, located in the centre of Dublin, & sample the 'craic' in Dublin's music filled pubs.

Horse racing, riding & horse shows, fill the Irish sporting calender & are readily available throughout the whole area - from the neighbouring Seabank equestrian farm, you will often see horses being exercised outside your door.

Shopping on your doorstep just 3kms away in the state of the art Bridgewater Centre, with a range of well known brands & fashion items to hand, as well as drop in cafes & entertainments for the kids.

Relax in front of a blazing fire, with the beach-combed wood freshly cut for your convenience & take in the moon spilling its golden light across the sea & into your living room.
